• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

Nice clock. German spring balance escapement, this clock is no more than about 30 years old, mid 1970's to late 1980's.

I've owned a few of these Elliott dual-chimers, and I have the same model as your clock. There should be some numbers stamped on the bottom that I believe are the month and year the clock was made. I know they were making them in the 1960s, maybe even a littler earlier.

I'm almost certain the movement is made by Elliott, and therefore cannot be German. This is definitely no Hermle. The escapements on these clocks are usually engraved "French Escapement."

In my opinion, a lot of clock in a relatively little package. :)

Well it has a little more history now as the Worcester Porcelain closed it's doors in 2009:

The museum is the only part of Royal Worcester left at the Severn Street site in Worcester after the factory went into administration in 2008 and closed in 2009. The Royal Worcester Visitor Centre, the seconds shop and the cafe all closed with the factory in 2009.
It was a sad day for Worcester as all we have now is Worcestershire Sauce! (but great on cheese on toast)

Enjoy you clock
